OpenStack Governance Elections: Technical Committee

Now that we have elected the Project Technical Leads for the next release, the OpenStack community is called to elect the last 3 members of the OpenStack Technical Committee. Per section 4.1(b) of the OpenStack Foundation bylaws, the Technical Committee (“TC”) is a technical meritocracy managing all the technical matters relating to OpenStack. It replaces the “Project Policy Board” from the old governance.
